How to Resolve an Acquisition Dispute

The FAA implemented its own unique and independent procurement process by developing the Acquisition Management System (AMS), which became effective on April 1, 1996.  As part of the AMS, the FAA created the Office of Dispute Resolution for Acquisition (ODRA) to resolve procurement protests and contract disputes on behalf of the FAA Administrator.  The ODRA is the only forum authorized to resolve and decide bid protests and contract disputes that relate to procurement actions under the FAA’s AMS.
